  • 1 tube crescent roll sheet
  • 14 oz. frozen meatballs
  • 4 oz. can sliced olives drained
  • Marinara sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. On a clean counter, roll out your crescent sheet. Cut into thin, 1/4 inch strips, lengthwise. Gently wrap the crescent dough around a meatball and place on the baking sheet.
  3. Spoon a small amount of marinara sauce onto the back of an olive and then stick it on the meatball as an eye. Repeat with another olive and place it next to the previous olive. Keep doing this until all the meatballs are decorated.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until meatballs are hot and crescent dough is lightly browned.
  5. Serve warm, with marinara sauce.
